This was a farmhouse in ruins near the Tuscan town of Anghiari transformed by Nicholas Risley
Main entrance, I love the clay tiles, wooden doors and flagstone everywhere
Imagine cooking a fresh vegetable frittata with produce just picked from your own garden....(or
someone else cooking for you) while you sip your latte in the sun-filled breakfast area
with a view to the stunning countryside... aaahh, that's Amore!
This Tuscan villa in Cortona was restored over a 10 year period using the bricks and rubble on the property. Restoration by Fulvio di Rosa - it's now an exclusive 32-acre rental property.
Here di Rosa painted the plaster walls yellow and added flagstone to the Trattoria,
more vino and percuitto please!
